BUILDING AN EQUITABLE FUTURE
The Samatvam Trust was founded in 2021 and is underwritten by Curadev. It has the broad objective of equalizing access to knowledge across different strata of society. The long term objective of the Trust is to create an informed and compassionate citizenry capable of applying critical thinking methodologies to better address the challenges in their lives.
KIDS EDUCATION CAMP
One of the main initiatives of the Samatvam Trust is to ensure that every child attends school with dignity. In association with NGO Deepalaya, Kids Education Camp focuses on benefiting underprivileged children from Delhi. The objective is to encourage every child to take the first step towards school by providing them with necessities like a school bag, notebook, water bottle, lunch box and stationery.
During the event, Samatvam donated books from Eklavya Publications to Deepalaya community library based in Okhla, Delhi.
since February 2018
Founded in 1987, the New Delhi based NGO Akshya Pratishthan focuses on providing inclusive education to children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds as well as those with special needs. Funded largely through private sources, the school equips its student body with a range of academic and vocational skills to prepare them for adulthood.
Our funding is focused on improving the quality of education by supporting, hiring and retaining qualified teachers for the students.

WOMENS HEALTH & HYGIENE CAMP
We support groups that promote women's health and welfare. During a donation camp held by the Samatvam Trust in association with Smile India Trust, a health and hygiene kit containing multi-vitamin and calcium tablets, herbal medicine, oil for joint pain, dietary supplements, sanitary pads and sanitizer and masks were distributed to women from a low income housing area in Noida, on the outskirts of Delhi. Dr. Shilpi from Smile India Trust provided education around menstrual health, nutrition and the importance of health and hygiene.

LIFELINE EXPRESS PROJECT
Curadev was proud to support the 192nd Lifeline Express Project conducted at Araria in Bihar, a large district with a vast rural population, agriculture being the primary occupation. There is an acute shortage of specialist doctors and inadequate infrastructure to deliver health services to needy people in the community.
The Project provided medical treatment to thousands of poor patients including dental and gynecological care while also performing corrective orthopedic surgeries and operating on cataracts. Lifeline Express also offered preventative services such as hearing tests and oral cancer screening.
Curadev was a proud sponsor of the Impact India’s 172nd Lifeline Express Project at Gondia in Maharashtra in 2016. An initiative by IIF (Impact India Foundation), the Lifeline Express (LLE) is the world’s first state-of-the-art hospital on a train. Launched on July 16, 1991 in partnership with Indian Railways, the LLE aims to cater to those who cannot reach hospital and bring modern medical care to under-served rural and tribal areas.
Super Cyclonic Storm Amphan was the most powerful storm to hit the eastern coast line of India in decades and caused widespread devastation in West Bengal. Mass evacuations based on early satellite data restricted the loss of human life to 86 but the state suffered calamitous losses of housing and infrastructure just as the country was coping with the first wave of COVID-19.
The contribution of Curadev team members which averaged to 5 days of salary was sent to aid the relief efforts of the Government of West Bengal.
NATIONAL COVID RELIEF
Lockdowns imposed to slow the spread of the pandemic in 2020 led to a severe disruption in the national economic output.
The contribution of Curadev team members which averaged to 15 days of salary was sent to the Chief Minister relief funds of Uttar Pradesh and Delhi and to the National Prime Minister relief fund, in an effort to buffer the unprecedented economic impacts of the lockdown. Curadev itself contributed an equivalent amount through the Samatvam Trust.
KERALA FLOOD RELIEF
Unusually high rainfall during the season led to the worst flood in Kerala in nearly a century. Flooding affected hundreds of villages, destroyed an estimated 10,000 km of roads and thousands of homes. More than 600 people lost their lives or are presumed dead.
Curadev supplemented the donation of 2 days salary by team members with a matching donation to aid the relief efforts of the Government of Kerala.
